We stopped into this fantastic authentic Taverna after spending the morning at Elofonisi beach. There is a sign for Gialites Tavern not to far past Elofonisi that points you to the left. It's a little further than you expect but well worth the drive. It's very traditional, no menus, they just tell you what they have cooked and you make your choice from there! We had Tzatziki, Greek Salad, Meatballs and a slow cooked chicken all were fantastic and very well priced. If you're looking for something authentic, quiet and away from all the tourist traps then this is a place worth checking out!

Recommended by our eco accommodation at Milia. Came for lunch, Had peppers marinated in olive oil, a Greek salad and chicken slow cooked with onions. Sat inside under trees, very hot (37); mum cooks and the son served tables. One of the best tasting meals we experienced in Crete. Huge portions and the three dishes only cost 20 euros. Highly recommended

We adventured to Gialotes from Elafonisi which was a 15 min car drive after reading 5star reviews from other travellers. We were not let down. Truly gorgeous atmosphere and delicious home made food. No menu, just what is fresh and available will make it to your table. The owner comes to explain what he has on for the evening and may even enjoys
a little chat and a glass of wine with you too. We had the best food so far in Crete here. Really 5 stars no doubt. Just be aware it isn't a place to go to for fish as it's up on the hills and specialises in vegetables and meat. Great for veggetarians too.

Amazing food especially the seafood and great service from Chef and his family.
We really highly recommend the food from this tavern with great service to bring it to your holiday location in the area.
Will definitely have their food again when in Crete!

Authentic ambiente, warm-hearted service, excellent food. A little gem on the way from Elafonisi to Falafarna. Thank you so much!
